Okay, so that's twice in recent weeks that I've seen an iPhone app that involves kidlit. Here's the first, a 9.99 dictionary for the kiddies featuring Curious George, put out by Houghton. This is all according to the Publisher's Weekly story, which seems to indicate that this is just the first of many.

Then I stumbled upon another, ReaderGenie. This one seems more truly useful to teachers or parents of young children. It works with the website of the same name to find books based on such diverse criteria as ages and grades, emotions, and even whether it has an animal character. Plus, this one's free.

What do you think? Would you add these apps to your iPhone?
